Wonder if that is the one that ended up at CRRM in Golden, CO,
or if it's the one that was scrapped.

4455 according to my dad who grew up seeing that engine switch the plant before the 70 toner replaced it.

The coal box is greatly extended with something with corrugations in it. The water column is interesting too. I always like switchers with sloped back tenders (for greater visibility while switching).
